On Friday, Oct. 18, Mohawk Valley Community College will host MFG Day, a free event for job seekers, students, and employers as part of an effort to highlight advanced manufacturing—a vibrant and growing industry that offers diverse, high-paying career opportunities. The event will offer tours of the FABLab, showcase interactive exhibits featuring New York State products and technologies, educational exhibits providing STEM pathways, and workforce development exhibits connecting job seekers with manufacturers.

MFG Day, an annual national event held in communities across the country, is supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents, and community members at open houses, plant tours, and more to change perceptions of manufacturing and highlight the high-tech and innovative companies that are solving tomorrow’s challenges today.

First held in 2012 by its founder, the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International, MFG Day is now organized around the country giving manufacturers the opportunity to address the skills gaps they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry as a whole.
